Remo Stars’ Obi Expects Difficult Clash Against Akwa United

BY OLADIMEJI OSHODE

 

Remo Stars this Wednesday continued the battle to stay afloat in the Nigerian elite league as they play hosts to in-form Akwa United.

Remo Stars suffered a 2-0 loss to El- Kanemi Warriors in Maiduguri and all mindsets will be gazed on securing maximum points against the visitors who defeated Kastina United in Match Day 25 of the league.

Newman Musa got the only goal for the promise keepers in the first leg of the encounter at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo against the Sky Blue Stars in Match Day 6 of the NPFL.

Since the major victory against the Sky Blue Stars, Akwa United have accumulated points that have moved them to 4th on the log with 39points.

Meanwhile, the Sky Blue Stars remain on 26 points after Match Day 25 games, a win for the host against the visitors will definitely move them one spot ahead of their current position on the log.

Remo Stars staunch defender, Obi Ekene, has indicated that the match against Akwa United is going to be a difficult game but they will surely overcome.

Obi said “I know the match is not going to be easy for us because Akwa United is a very good team and we have to respect them.

“We are condemned to win, there is nothing anybody can do about it because I am sure we will win and I am assuring our fans that we will win.”

Akwa United are 4th on the log with 39 points and speaking about the position, Obi Ekene feels it’s not a determinant not to get maximum points against the visitors on Wednesday.

“This is not the first time we are playing a team in the first 4 position, ABS FC were in that position when we defeated them and if we could defeat them 3-0 then it’s not new to us.”

“Our promo season is over and I can assure you that we are ready to defeat any team that come to the Gateway International Stadium, Sagamu.”

“We are not in a good position now but I can tell you that we aren’t meant for that position with the way we play and I am still very optimistic that Remo Stars will escape relegation at the end of the season.” Obi remarked.
